An evening walk in dark and foggy weather made this photo possible.

The following day I had some time to wander around and check out some of the other wildlife, and head up to the Park Butte lookout. With a forecast of 6-8 inches of rain overnight chances were the sky would be interesting making for some good photos, but in typical North Cascades fashion when I got there it was foggy and wet.

|I dont see these guys often, but its always a treat when I do.|
A few hours after getting back down from the lookout the weather cleared for what would surely be a sunset to remember, so I ran back up to the lookout for the second time in four hours and shot the following photo.
